Rumors: Blizzard Will Announce and Release Diablo II Resurrected This Year
According to sources of the French edition called ActuGaming, Blizzard Entertainment is preparing several new projects, one of which is an updated version of Diablo II. It will be called Diablo II Resurrected.
According to ActuGaming, which is very close to Blizzard Entertainment, the release of Diablo II Resurrected will take place in the fourth quarter of 2020 to please fans of the series. It will happen since Diablo IV will not be released soon. But plans may change due to the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic.
Diablo II Resurrected is being developed by Vicarious Visions. It helped Bungie Studio to port Destiny 2 on PC. Also, they released Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. In addition, they successfully dealt with Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled port on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. They are also responsible for releases of Skylanders on various platforms.
Perhaps the announcement of Diablo II Resurrected will take place as part of the Summer Festival Summer Game Fest 2020 or the November BlizzCon 2020.
According to ActuGaming, Blizzard Entertainment is also busy developing Overwatch 2, Diablo IV, and two World of Warcraft expansions, as well as three mobile games. It is not known whether Diablo Immortal is among them and by what franchises these projects are developed.
The company also acknowledges the failure with Warcraft III: Reforged and believes that the main mistake was in the marketing of the game. They say that instead of a remake, it was worth submitting the project as a simple remaster.
